Discerning God's Will

God Has a Plan

The Lord knows all, sees all, and is present everywhere. He has always been and always will be, is infinitely wise, and is all powerful. We can be sure that no matter how uncertain life seems to us, God has a plan for us. And He will guide us through it.

The Direction Is Not Always Clear

However it doesn’t always seem that way, does it? It’s not always clear what next step God wants us to take. We don’t always know what job we should pursue. The best way to handle a given situation is not always clear. We are often left confused about what to say and do in a difficult relationship. 

There Is Help: Book Review

Sometimes we need help discerning the Lord’s will for us in a given situation. That’s why Brittany Ann wrote Follow God’s Will: Biblical Guidelines for Everyday Life. She wants to reassure us Christians that God does have a plan for us and does give guidance for living out that plan. She desires to equip Christians to tap into the wisdom found in the Bible and apply it to situations we face. In Follow God’s Will, Brittany Ann provides a biblical framework, relevant scripture verses, and practical suggestions for answering the many questions we may have about God’s will for our lives. She gives us thoughts, suggestions, and applications to incorporate and ponder. And she sprinkles in real-life stories to help us feel less alone in our uncertainties.

I appreciate that Brittany Ann doesn’t pretend to have all the answers for every situation we face. Instead she points us back to the wisdom and encouragement God reveals in the Bible, giving us a biblical framework to follow with thoughts and approaches to ponder and pray about. And importantly, she is quick to point to prayer as a first step in making any decision.

Follow God’s Will

I think Follow God’s Will is especially helpful for newer Christians or for those who have not spent much time in the Word. However, those who have walked with the Lord for many years should also find a few nuggets to help in their decision-making. 

No matter what decision you are facing or situation you are walking through, know that God offers help. As Brittany Ann writes, you can “trust that God is who He says He is, He can do what He says He can do, and He knows what He’s talking about,” even if we don’t understand. And she assures us that “following God is always worth it.” I agree!

“Help me understand your instruction, and I will obey it and follow it with all my heart.” Psalm 119:34

Hello, I'm Julie, an imperfect wife and mother of four. Life in this broken world is not always easy. Yet, joy can be found in each day through the grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I find it's easy for our day's blessings to get lost in its happenings. But God's "mercies never end" (Lamentations 3:22) and His "grace is sufficient" (2 Corinthians 12:9).

May the posts and pages on this site offer you a measure of peace and encouragement.
